Did You Know?


Robert Johnson was a young, and by all accounts untalented, boy who, in the early 1920s when he was in his late teens, would hang around bars listening to the Blues musicians of the day. He dreamed of being able to play like them. From accounts of his contemporaries, he disappeared for a few months and when he resurfaced he could play Blues better than everyone. He shot to fame almost over night. His music does feature many occult references, and the legend grew that he had sold his soul to the devil in return for talent and fame. He died at 27, under mysterious circumstances. There are several different accounts of his death, and he left behind at least three women claiming to be his widow. It is unknown if or where he was buried. To this day he remains an artistic legend, and those who remembered him maintained till they died that they had never seen anything like him before or since.

The picture of the black dog that Dean comments on is actually that of Fenrir, a monstrous wolf in Norse mythology, not a hell hound. His destructive powers were so feared that the gods had no choice but to imprison him. Also in the picture is the god Tyr, a deity noted for his courage and strength. See more »

A Very Good Episode!
19 November 2006 | by See all my reviews

Even though a lot of Supernatural's episodes are very similar, this one was very good and well put together. You learn a little background information and more about Dean's personality.

Dean gets frustrated with this week's demon because he believes that his father made a deal; his life for Dean's. Dean doesn't want that burden, and when he summons the demon of the week, he contemplates over whether or not to bring back his father in exchange for his life 10 years later.

One thing I didn't like about this episode was the acting from Dean's demon. She was so completely over the top and it threw up a huge "Over Acting" flag in front of my face. She got really annoying and she could have toned everything down a little bit.

Overall, great episode, guys! Can't wait for the next one!
